Programming and Planning
WIH has been designed with innovative facility programming and planning to provide efficient workflow
and minimize space requirements. We have simplified visitor, patient and staff circulation throughout
the building to optimize workflow, upheld patient privacy and security. We have also implemented design detailing and environmental elements that focus on the safety and well-being of patients
making it conducive for healing, comfort, and relaxation.
The building was designed to conform to standards from JCI - Joint Commission International,
NFPA – National Fire Protection Agency, UL – Underwriters Lab, AIA Healthcare Facilities Guidelines,
FGI – Facilities Guidelines Institute, and ASHRAE - American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and
Air-Conditioning Engineers for a safer environment for occupants and to further extend the lifecycle
of the facility.
